GIS Chapter 1


Geospatial technology describes the use of a number of different high-tech systems and tools that acquire, analyze, manage, store, or visualize various types of location-based data.
Geographic information system (GIS): Computer-based mapping, analysis, and retrieval of location-based data
Remote sensing: Acquisition of data and imagery from the use of satellites (satellite imagery) or aircraft (aerial photography)
Global Positioning System (GPS): Acquisition of real-time location information from a series of satellites in Earth’s orbit
Archeology GIS Application The ability to pinpoint the location of artifacts uncovered on a dig, construct a map of the area, and then search for patterns on the site are all archeological functions that can be rendered quickly and efficiently with geospatial technology
What Is Geospatial Data? Geospatial data (also often referred to as “spatial data”) refers to location-based data, which is at the heart of geospatial technology applications.
